Oi In + Jeremy // Engagement Session

I’ve been living in Baltimore for a little over a year now, and it’s been really great. The city is awesome, and there are cool people here, like Oi In + Jeremy! Oi In is a researcher and Jeremy is also a photographer! They are ridiculously cute together, and it was really fun hanging out with them on the drive down to the National Gallery of Art and back. During this journey I discovered that Jeremy and I have the unusual (for Americans, I guess?) connection of Mew being one of our favorite bands.

Mew is a Danish supergroup whose music completely destroys.

But ok, the photos. We made our way down to the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art and walked around for a couple of hours, just being generally crazy and discovering all the nooks and crannies that the famed art institution has to offer. We braved security guards, we jumped over those dumb retractible barriers they use for airport lines and into forbidden stairways, we braved a rooftop full of giant metal numbers, we ran past the Calder mobile. For whatever reason we were not kicked out, and ended up with the beautiful images below. Here we go:

Meghan + Nacho // Patapsco Valley State Park Engagement

You can probably tell just from looking at them how amazing and awesome these two are.

I warned Meghan + Nacho, after they told me that they would like an engagement session in a state park (in this case, Patapsco Valley), that in order to get the best images possible, I will make them hike, cross rocky creeks, climb waterfalls, + confront their deepest fears (well, not really. I didn’t tell them that beforehand. But we confronted our deepest fears anyway: we crossed paths with a gigantic wolf spider near the waterfall, and it was awesome). Oh right, we located Maryland’s second biggest waterfall, Cascade Falls!!

…it’s not very big.

Two hours of trail-trodding and discovery later, we got back to our cars with a few minor bug bites and a wonderful sense of joy. It was amazing getting to know Meghan and Nacho and I’m so glad we got the chance to hang out and make beautiful photos together!

Sandy + Kevin // Baltimore Engagement

It was rainy, it was cold, it was windy, it was foggy, it was awesome.

I’m glad we all collectively decided to go through with this session despite the aforementioned meteorological issues Baltimore was experiencing at the time.

Have I mentioned yet how great Sandy and Keven are?? They are great!!! They’re wonderfully comfortable around each other that comes from a lasting love, and have a warmth to them that’s easy to see. Their wedding is going to be in Baltimore next month and I cannot wait to be there. Until then, check out this crazy baltimore engagement session!
